places besides the u.s. stock market. the metals were on fire today, particularly silver. slv, that's the way you play it. goes much higher. >> all right, i'm melissa lee. see you tomorrow, 9:00 a.m. we have the ceo of tomorrow's ipo solar city, then back here at 5:00 >>> i'm jim cramer and welcome to my world. >> you need to get in the game. >> he's nuts! they're nuts! they know nothing! >> i always like to say there's a bull market somewhere. "mad money." you can't afford to miss it. i'm cramer. welcome to "mad money." my job is not just to entertain but i'm trying to teachary and coach you. call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. you can blame the democrats for their inability to offer any cuts for spending. you can blame the republicans for not even wanting to consider tax increases. but don't you dear blame ben bernanke for not being willing to take bold action to get this economy hiring and moving again! even if his statements about economic weakness ultimately caused the averages to stumble from some pretty lofty levels. dow only declining ability 3 points s & p inching up 4.4%. close in
and putting it to work. the u.s. economy is simply much stronger than we thought just a few quarters ago. second, these deals show that there are ceos who are willing to give up or share their empires in order to make money for their shareholders. oh, cramer, these people are so rich. i know they're not sacrificing financially. that's not the point. the target ceos will all do well but these guys are empire builders. finally, even as the sale of the stock indicates in a symbolic way, these deals show the companies are listed -- that are listed themselves are often worth far more than they're currently trading for. that's not an aberration. it happening marketwide. think about it. we have a financial brokerage company, right, stocks and oil service company, a tech concern and an insurer's business bringing out value virtually overnight. here's the bottom line. we can be riveted and saddened by what's going on in washington or angry, the refusal of all politicians to rise above their milieu or we can be constructive and search for the opportunities that are right there in front of us, in m
the cliff. they'll downgrade the u.s. debt. but that's it. by the way, we have already proven through nine ways of sunday that -- when our credit rating got downgraded last summer. well, bonds went up in price and down in-year-old. -- in yield. so why not do nothing? why doesn't the president say we're just going to keep bonds the way they are. and we're not going to cut entitlements because we know if we don't cut taxes, the republicans will go along with their no tax pledge and the markets will go higher and no one will care, for now. but he told us that's not going to happen, and he got re-elected. what does it matter? it doesn't raise a lot of money. why didn't he just say that we're taking the able of social security to 6, cutting the military budget. the democrats will be committing political suicide and the republicans. that's why i was hoping that congress would rise above and figure out a more reasonable way to spend less and take in more money over time and get the budget over time. the moronic cliff doesn't hurt. what do we need? i have to use his words because it's like a curse
's chief u.s. economist. thank you for joining us. you take a look at the potential prolonged uncertainty. at what point do you say my long-term forecast for the united states, it may have been ratcheted down? >> melissa, thank you for having me. we never thought that odds were that high that cliff would be dealt with. our base case is that it would be, but only 60/40, and as we've seen over the past few weeks, the dialog has broken down and i think obviously, a very good chance to go over. i don't have gdp around 1% in the first quarter. it could be a lot worse, depending on how this thing evolves. they could do a patch here. maybe on amt, the medicare doc fix, and as markets hemorrhage under january, which i guess they would under what i've seen so far, maybe it brings both parties back to the bargaining table. i think you are exactly right. all things are up in the air, and the outlook for growth is much more uncertainty for hiring spending, all things, it's a real mess. >> in terms of ratcheting corporate earnings efforts, the president is very aware of it. the white house is having c
the great recession with flying colors. about 30% of the dealers in the u.s. went under during the recession. isn't that extraordinary? but brunz week's dealer remained flat. they held in much better than the competition. they used the economic weakness to take share. plus the company took out $450 million in fixed costs during the downturn to come out even stronger than ever. that's the brunswick we're dealing with today. second, if higher taxes going forward mean there's slightly less demand for motorboats and fishing boats, you know what? i think that could be more than offset by the additional demand created by all those boats that sandy damaged or destroyed. and even before sandy, things were getting better for brunswick. over the last decade, the age of the average powerboat in the water has gone from 15 years old to 21 years old. wow! i thought cars at 11 years was a lot. that means there's a ton of pent-up replacement demand. we saw the same thing happen in the automobile market where the average car on the road got so old that it has led to a new surge. that's what that $15 million
in china eventual l. maybe not this quarter. while the u.s., i think, is strong because of foot locker, but some analyst came out today and said u.s. is even weak. remember, nike trades on futures orders, not on earnings. so if you're dumb enough to want to trade in after hours, be aware, you might be trading on the wrong number. friday. these are big brand names. what a big week next week. friday we get results from walgreen's. i feel badly for wag. we just heard from cvs yesterday which boosted its numbers. that's a tough comparison to go against. i don't know how walgreen's can keep up. i will say this, though, the drug stores have been in secular share take mode from other stores, which is one reason why cvs was able to deliver such a strong number p. and i think walgreen's will show better numbers now that it's put its express scripts tiff behind it. moving over to cvs. that was really he helpful for c slchlt s. the gigantic purchase of alliance boots. and whether walgreen's is swallowing more than it can chew. be ready for the heimlich. the newly design the walgreen's and dwayne
general motors buying $5.5 billion worth of stock from the u.s. government's t.a.r.p. program. and it was at a price $2 above where gm traded yesterday. that's right. we, the people, got a better deal than we could've ever hoped for just the day before. gm most likely would have been liquidated, putting more than 1 million people out of work. if the federal government hadn't bailed it out. nobody likes a bailout. people don't like to use the phrase bailout and the government isn't going to be made whole in this investment. i'm saying that point-blank. that's because it's so gigantic. the simple fact is also not only does gm exist, but it was capable of throwing off $5.5 billion to repay some of the t.a.r.p. investment. this thing was at death's door, now it's thriving, just like aig which also shouldn't have come back, but it did. those are two 2012 success stories that explain how robust corporate america really is and how unheralded that development is. what else? how about that the united states is producing more oil than any time in the last 17 years and producing enough t
did today for my travel trust. we judge the u.s. economy to be strong. strong enough to survive a fall on a trampoline or deep pool. we think housing, autos, anything china related can be bought right here using weakness as an opportunity to buy and not sell as we work toward a deal. keep in mind that it might take until the super bowl when everyone by then would have seen the truncated paychecks and got to get a deal then. give them the failure of the government to rise up to a compromise on the cliff so far. you would expect a bigger sell-off today unless of course you recognize that a compromise is more easily reached in 2013 than 2012 and maybe a stopgap. if we wake for a kick the can deal, what's the point of selling? it's better to be a buyer instead of seller. compromise is far more likely than not despite last night's shenanigans. jack in florida, jack? >> caller: i read your book. i enjoyed it very much. >> thank you. >> caller: i'm following a sector rotation strategy with some of my investments. currently in the material sector. and hoping to catch more of the housing uprise

is falling apart and the u.s. looks pretty darn good by compareson, you need a stock that gives you domestic security, something that's entirely confined within our borders. because if those moments being exposed to the rest of the world is downright dangerous. what do i mean by domestic security? anything that's usa all the way. you can own a phone company like at&t or verizon. pick a regional to national restaurant chain like duncan brands or dollar store like dollar general. how about a real estate investment trust, tanger factory outlets, you've seen those companies on over and over. why? because they have been winners or just own the iyr. don't like ets. but the point is in terms of international turmoil this slot shutting tipped by something all domestic and when the world is in much better shape, which is where we were after the financial crisis, then maybe you'll want to own a foreign company. bottom line. always own a stock that's from a safe geography. sometimes that means a foreign company. sometimes just got to always pay attention to the facts, pay attention. it means the domest
